A Houston educator might be in big trouble with the school board after a recent assembly. Dr. Tameca Richardson told an auditorium full of Jack Yates High School’s female students to stop dressing like “hoes”.
Obviously, a lot of parents were upset an administrator with a doctorate couldn’t come up with a better way to remind girls to follow the dress code. But there were parents who said Dr. Richardson’s “tough love approach” was just was the girls needed:
“If the the young ladies were dressed in such a way that portrays the way ‘hoes on the street’ are dressed I think it was appropriate that the administrators bring it to their attention, telling them we have a dress code here and we don’t want you dressing like ‘hoes’ because it’s not appropriate,” parent Mary Owens told Fox 26 Houston.
Tough love is one thing, but that’s just insulting. You can’t call teenagers names like that. If there’s a dress code, then say that. All it takes is a simple reminder, and if that doesn’t work, you call the parents. Because really, parents are responsible for what their kids wear to school.
The school district has issues an apology to the students and their families but Dr. Richardson hasn’t been fired.
Do you think she went too far?
